Keke Palmer has grown up right before our eyes. But for the actress, who is the star of Jamal Hill’s upcoming drama, Brotherly Love, her evolving looks, style and brand has come with a bit of backlash.
If you follow the beauty on Instagram, you might have noticed that the 21-year-old recently cut her hair and her style has become a bit more edgy. And while many of the Illinois native’s millions of fans and followers are hesitant to accept Palmer’s new look, the star wants to make one thing clear: “Life is about changing.”
“You’re only going to grow if you change,” Keke told HipHollywood exclusively. “I got tired of living behind my brand only. Realizing, I can have my private life and I can have my work life.”
“It’s trying to find a happy balance and encouraging other people like myself that maybe aren’t even in the industry to feel the same way,” Palmer said when asked about defending herself on social media. “Don’t be afraid to grow and change and walk outside of what you thought you were. That’s nothing to be afraid of. That’s what life is about. Life isn’t’ about holding on to old things.”
Right now, Palmer is rocking her long locks, but rest assure, her short hair will be back sooner than later. Click above to find out what Keke and Brotherly Love executive producer, Queen Latifah both say about the her short, sassy do.
BL which also stars Cory Hardrict, Quincy Brown and Eric Hill, hits theaters on April 24.
